World University Presidents' Forum


Shandong University (SDU) has been devoted to internationalization since its establishment. Even in its early years, the University both hired foreign faculty and selected outstanding talents to study abroad. Over the long course of its development, SDU has always been rooted in Chinese culture, set its sights on new scientific frontiers and taken pride in having an open and progressive character. Internationalization has been identified as one of the strategies to guide the University into the future.

As the world is undergoing profound changes unseen in a century, it has never been more important for global university leaders to stand together as a united community so as to tackle the challenges faced by us all and to refine the mission of the university.

In 2021, Shandong University will celebrate its 120th anniversary. As part of the celebration, the University will hold a World University Presidents' Forum under the theme of "Higher Education for a Shared Future: Addressing Global Challenges". Leaders of national and international universities are invited to participate in the forum to further enhance exchange and cooperation and chart a new course of higher education for the new era.
